Which Watch are you watching, watcher?
Ahhh yes, remember when watches were these ultra-valuable items where you can only buy in jewelry store? Nowadays, you can buy a watch for less then 2 bucks! Back when people cared, although there MIGHT be some people who care about watch-making nowadays, watch making was almost an art-form. We follow some of the production methods in this film, which is extremely interesting, as some of these items are impossibly intricate. Some of which are teeny teeny tiny. All of this takes expert employees! And theyre tested! Great tests too! Soon, a watch.. Im sorry a FINE watch, since theyre hammering that point down all the time, is born!! Funny how people responded to receiving a watch with total jubilation. (and a singing of Auld Lang Syne)
My how times have changed!
